NOW PLAYING: Ida Mae – “Deep River” ft. Marcus King

4 Dec

Good Friday! A few weeks ago this gem of a track dropped from Ida Mae and featuring Marcus King! Definitely worth your ears today and so is getting lost in their Spotify profile to get familiar with this due from across the pond that now resides in Nashville. Pair them with Marcus King and well, give a listen for yourself and you’ll understand! Enjoy!

New Music: The Apache Relay

17 Jun

A band I recently started listening to and also had the opportunity to see live at Bonnaroo was The Apache Relay.  The roots-rock quartet hailing from Nashville, Tennessee is a band everyone needs to check out, especially if you are a fan of The Avett Brothers, John Butler Trio and The Boss, Bruce Springsteen.  On their latest record, American Nomad, the band’s energetic grooves and vocals of Michael Ford Jr. come together to unleash a sound that is contagious from start to finish; bouncing between soft, melodic sing-alongs and upbeat jams.  I will also say that while I dig the disc, seeing them live is where it’s at.

And one more reason to love and listen to The Apache Relay, they have already been on the road with one of my favorite artists, G. Love.
